Groningen adventures

Over and out. We had so much fun at Tiny Shark Art Attack (in collaboration with the lovely people from Sharksomeness Bookings and Vera Groningen ArtDivision) during Eurosonic. Thank you all for coming, dear friends. And thanks to all the bands for playing their beautiful songs. We are proud, satisfied and exhausted. So much fun to celebrate great music with all you beautiful people. And very much looking forward to next year!

12513498_1109175085759161_4169342900084221199_oLouder Than War wrote about Lost Bear: “[…] whose new tracks sounded like a fabulously “emo” mix of Diamond Dogs-era Bowie, a proggy Small Faces and Do The Collapse-era Guided By Voices. To wit; a soulful and clever rock band with enough self depreciation to keep any stadium nonsense at bay. They rocked out in the basement of the famous old Vera club, the chiming chords and brilliant harmonies bouncing off the low ceiling and the sleepy audience (it was just 2pm after all) nodding along, shaking the loose wax out of their ears.”

De groep uit Utrecht combineert zware, onheilspellende ritmes met lichtvoetige viool. Dit samenspel zorgt voor onverwachte, maar erg prettige wendingen. […] Op sommige momenten speelt This Leo Sunrise snoeihard, even later is het zo stil dat je de kruk van drummer Chris Müller kunt horen kraken. De afwisseling zorgt voor een aangenaam en uitgebalanceerd optreden. Kortom: deze formatie uit het midden van het land staat als een huis.”
